An MRI exam on San Francisco Giants slugger Pablo Sandoval has confirmed the All-Star third baseman has a left hamstring strain.
Sandoval sat out Wednesday's series finale against the San Diego Padres. With an off day Thursday, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said the team will wait until Friday to decide whether Sandoval needs to be put on the disabled list.
Sandoval shifted to first base in Tuesday night's 3-2 victory against the Padres. He left the game after three innings when he strained his hamstring stretching for a catch to finish a double play.
Sandoval is batting .299 with eight home runs and 33 RBIs this season. He missed more than a month already this year after surgery to remove a broken hamate bone in his left hand.

Still not the strangest thing Brian Wilson has ever done.
This is a spoof of the Funny or Die bit, Between Two Ferns, only this one’s called Uncaged with Sasquatch!, with the mythical beast serving as host. This time around he interviews Giants closer Brian Wilson, except that the segment doesn’t go as planned because Wilson keeps receiving personal phone calls via telephones...

As the San Francisco Giants hosted the San Diego Padres Tuesday night, Angel Pagan made a tremendous diving catch, which turned into a phenomenal double play. In the top of the eighth inning of a 2-2 ballgame, San Diego’s Carlos Quinten came to the plate with Chase Headley on first base and one out. Quinten sent...

In clearly the least shocking development from Tuesday’s slate of baseball games is the news that Pablo Sandoval, the San Francisco Giants infielder who affectionately goes by the name of Kung-Fu Panda, injured his hamstring stretching out and practically doing the splits to catch a throw in order to [...]

1. Brandon Belt
Brandon Belt burst onto the scene in 2010 and was, in Kevin Goldstein's words, "the biggest breakout in the minor leagues in 2010."It’s hard to argue with that assessment. Belt was the Giants’ fifth-round selection in the 2009 amateur draft, and all he did in his professional debut was zoom from High-A to Triple-A, hitting a cumulative...
Tonight’s game was vintage NL West. The Giants got up big in the first inning, and then fizzled. The Padres fought back in the second, and then fizzled. Madison Bumgarner, who looked shaky early, settled down and allowed just 3 hits, a walk and a hit-by-pitch – and 7 strikeouts – after the second inning. Edinson Volquez, part of the Mat Latos trade, looked shaky early but allowed...
After scoring just three runs in the first two games of the series, both losses, the Padres offense showed up to beat the Giants 6-3 to avoid getting swept by the division leaders. Monday’s series opener was all San Francisco as they tagged Clayton Richard early and made fine plays in the field for an easy 7-1 victory.
Tuesday game was the more familiar pitcher’s duel both...
Every time we play the Giants it has a playoff atmosphere to it. I get that vibe especially when we are playing in San Francisco. I don't know if it's the sold out crowds or what, but it feels like a playoff game every time. Those people up there live and die with every pitch it seems, they go crazy for a base hit even. But that place really exploded when Angel Pagan stole...
Among the first sparks of trade deadline fever breaking out today with the Ichiro trade to New York and the Miami Marlins trading away infielder Omar Infante and starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez to the Detroit Tigers, the Giants seem to be searching for some help in the bullpen.
